- And another year begins...
- February 26th, 2010
So, obviously I lied & didn't update like I said I would. Anoter 6 months passed...oops.
Anyways, I woke up & couldn't get back to sleep so I started surfing wedding blogs for ideers & entertainment...and adultfiction.net is down so I'm bored & thought I'd stop by my ghosttown LJ.
Not much going on in my life except my nursing job & trying to get my wedding planned/organized...and that's not been too productive. Got engaged last V'day & another Feb 14th has passed without any real wedding plans.
We set a date, but haven't officially asked friends to be part of the wedding party, haven't set a city (torn between something here or something destination) or any venues. I have to say I've been a little depressed about planning it, which is sad in & of itself. But I've been hesitant to make any plans because everyone wants to have it their way/help & I'm a bit overwhelmed with the new job AND a wedding to plan. I'm to the point where I just want to be married & would be happy with an elopement or city hall-type wedding, but my dear Mark is set on a more traditional wedding, even if it's small & intimate. When did I become the indifferent male in the 'ship & he the frilly girl? Anyways...I've been with him for over 4yrs & I'm just sick of being single/engaged. We don't even officially live together (even though I'm always there/here) & I'm ready to be an old married couple, which I feel like already. *sigh*
But, I'm starting to see a tiny light at the end of the tunnel. I've recently started to become more interested in attempting to plan this shindig...slightly. I've really been holding out for an intimate destination wedding & may have found a wedding planner who can deliver. We would both love a beach wedding, but I get sick of all the cliche beach wedding packages. Sorry, not interested in hearts in the sand & rose petals tossed around. What is this? Some Fabio romance novel from the 1980's? *gag* But this planner seems to have a classy version of a beach wedding package with many choices of colors & set-ups, FRESH flowers that the bride can even DIY (we all know I can't help the florist in me from popping out) & many custom options. I'm starting to get hopeful & excited.
Now if only I weren't having some insomnia...but the net always keeps me happy so I'll digress.
And on a more relatable note, I'm working on a "laminated list" (not sure the person I got the ideer from got this name, but I suppose it has something to do with how you'd cherish your favs/crushes pics/posters & perhaps laminate it...anyways...), a compiled list of names & pics of hotties/celebs (both male & female, since we all know I'm borderline bi & appreciate the beauty of the female body :P). Not that it's vital to my ability to function, but it's fun & very enjoyable to look at purdies. ;)
And, I need to do some serious updating of profiles/accounts for here, Facebook & such. I'm bad about putting shit in there initially, but then neglecting it forever...which you would never guess back in SD days...oh well. Don't really feel like racking my brain right now about favs & new info so I'll procrastinate as always. 25yrs from now, Facebook will still have my status as engaged & childless & LJ will have my profile av as ones from "300". :P
And...j/k, no more "and"s...
